These take a fair amount of time to do because you have to dip the potato balls in 3 separate things, but it's well worth it. I used Yukon Gold potatoes because they are my favourite. You can add garlic powder and or onion powder to these or maybe some of your favourite herbs. Even a little hot sauce to give it some pizazz would be good. Be creative. I used tortilla chips as my outer coating, instead of potato chips. It might be nice to make a dip for these as well.

How to Make Baked Home Made Tater Tots

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 400'F
  2. Boil the potatoes in a large pot for about 20 minutes until fork tender. Drain and return to the pot.
  3. Gradually add the milk and mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Don't over mash, you want them to be lumpy. You might not need to use all the milk, you want them to be somewhat dry.
  4. Separate the eggs. Beat them and put them in a shallow bowl. Put the flour in a separate bowl and the crushed potato chips in separate a bowl.
  5. Using a cookie scoop make your potato balls and set them on wax or parchment paper. The balls should be 1 inch around. Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg, then the chips.
  6. It's messy, but worth the effort.
  7. Once coated shape them into the tater tots shape if you like and place on a lined baking sheet. I used my silpat baking sheet, but you can use parchment too.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until crispy and golden.
  9. Enjoy!
